DANCE NATION is a frenzied fantasia following a pre-teen competitive dance team as they claw their way cross-country to the national finals. The play premiered at Playwrights Horizons in 2018 and was the winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Awards and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Playwright Clare Barron was one of the first recipients of The Relentless Award for this groundbreaking play that the New York Times called “blazingly original and unsettlingly familiar.” For Mature Audiences Only, see our website for content warnings and accessible performances.
